Which?
Perhaps you dressed and made the effort
To go to Church today because you feel an inner need for strength along the way.
You probably found an inspiration
From the service and the songs
And realized that you found something
For which you tired heart longs
But was your faith left on the seat
When you stepped from the pew
Or do you plan to keep it working
All week in what you do?
-Pat Vardell


Nicest Gift: Bicycle from Bob when she turned 15. It was her first bike.
